Someone who refuses to either eat or wear anything derived from an animal. Not necessarily any less healthy than your typical omnivore—contrary to popular belief, you can get protein from some plants—but not necessarily any more so.

Also not inherently self-righteous...but altogether too many of them are.
"You can preach veganism at me all you want...but I'm not giving up chicken strips, silk shirts, or leather boots. Get over it."

PRACTICING Human Herbivore

ALL humans are herbivore by NATURE's design. Meat eating began in limited circumstances and was not a part of the 'hunter' tradition but rather was introduced by ancient temple priests to traumatize and condition children into becoming violence-enabled soldiers and police for the court.

This type of conditioning is called 'trauma-based conditioning'. The very ancient and horrific circumstances that introduced meat-eating in ancient temple cultures around the world have been intentionally obscured by today's miltiaristic societies, including the secret police run states of Europe and the US.

Biological proof of these facts are easy to find including the one that NO creature EVER violates its natural biological niche behaviors unless forced to do so.

Vegan is a stupid cultural term. Dietary behaviors must respect natural requirements. Humans are herbivores naturally and only culturally scripted to commit murder of animals. This is not a 'cultural' or 'lifestyle' issue.

We don't need more 'vegans' we need more people to stop sucking on the corporate disinformation machine and awaken to their own design imperatives as scripted by nature. And then to live accordingly as human herbivores.

This is an ecological issue and it is at the crux of every stupidty underlying and driving our arrogant, elitist, ignorant and war-mongoring society.

If you are not living as a human herbivore, you are an ecological moron.

Someone who doesn't eat anything that came from an animal. But then again, if that were their motto, they wouldn't be "allowed" to eat vegatables or fruits or pretty much anything else, either. Because those foods are grown in manuer, which, not to gross people out, is animal crap. And, FYI, animal crap comes from animals too. So vegans pretty much don't eat anything. Except water. Which isn't a food.
Ashley: Woah, Mary Kate, your so thin, what have you been eating?
Mary Kate: Just water. Hilary Duff is on the same thing. Isn't my new 'vegan diet' just FAB?!
Ashley: Um, sure.. but I asked what you were eating.
Mary Kate: Water...

1. Someone who does not eat meat, milk, eggs, or any other product that comes from animals (even honey).

2. Murderer of innocent vegetables.

3. Thinks a meatless diet stops animal suffering when it actually adds to it, since raising and harvesting vegetables mean that animals lose their habit, as well as:
• Being killed by pesticides
• Mangled by machinery
• Trampled beneath the tractors
Shot dead by farmers protecting the crops from pests
• Being torn apart by the farmer's dogs who guard the crops.

4. Some vegans live and let live, accepting and allowing others to eat meat and milk without hassling them. But some push their views onto others, becoming violent if people do not agree with them (Veganazi).
Hey, vegans! Don't worry about all the rabbits who were killed so that Cris P. Carrot enters your stomach and not theirs!
I mean, isn't it better that after they were alive to experience the incredible pain of being mutilated? It's oh so much better than being killed instantly and almost painlessly by a hunter or slaughter equipment, isn't it?

Vegetarians that not only choose to avoid ALL animal products, but also impose their beliefs on those of others.

Also, grain used in feeding cattle is not suitable for human consumption.
